dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificial low prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitted. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech at a company called kinsler construction services. mr. romney argued that president obama's stimulus had failed to help private companies. >> a new stimulus three years after the recession officially ended, that may spare government, but it won't stimulate the private sector than it did four years ago. >> that's what mitt romney said today at kinsler construction services in ames, iowa. you know that blissful moment waiting for the other shoe to drop? you can see david letterman scrutinizing the

actually country that gets to elect the president of the united states. the combined population of this country is roughly 21% of the total population of the united states, but that conglomeration of states is who gets to pick our next president. which means the equivalent of a country the size of france is deciding who the president is of a country the size of us. that little france-sized country gets tons and tons of attention now, to the point where even smallish population centers within this tiny bollous of states get lavish attention from the candidates. they even end up being the subjects of the candidates' flattering word play. >> as i was coming in, i got to meet the principal and the superintendent and i was saying, i stopped on the way down at a diner, had some breakfast, and someone said to me, ohioan said, where you coming from? and i said, dayton. they said, where you going? i said, marion. he said, i read in the paper, you said you love ohio. and that must be true, you've gone from dayton, ohio, to marrying ohio. i said, i never thought of it that way, i didn't think i wa

story somewhere. right? but when you want to be president of the united states, you can't keep proving that your first line of intelligence is the right-wing blog sphere and smag something that you read that isn't true ends up going directly into a presidential candidate's speech. stuff is not true just because you read it somewhere. yet twice now in the closing weeks of the campaign we have seen mitt romney operate that way. democrats think they see an end game, connecting the romney campaign problems that the romney campaign never corrects itself. the democrats now, you can tell, believe that they can sell the voting public on barack obama as the candidate you can trust to tell you the truth and believe what he says against mitt romney as the candidate you cannot trust. integrity has become the democrat's issue now. sbregty and entrust. the obama campaign was divided on strategy. they were divided over whether to hold mitt romney to the severely conservative positions he had to take to try to win. he e declared himself to be in order to get the nomination. they were divided between t

me the next president of the united states. >> all the interest in competing in ohio, the desperate need to win the election in ohio, the dualing rallies and the ground games, all that comes from the context of a big surprising decision in ohio this afternoon. about how the election is going to be run there this year. back in 2004, the night that the democratic ticket decided not to concede the race on election night because they were waiting on results. part of what was happening in '04 was this. these horrendous epic lines for ohio voters. they waited ten hours and more in ohio in 2004 to cast a vote. especially in precincts used heavily by african-americans and college students. the polls were not ready for everyone who wanted to vote. for voters likely to vote democratic, casting a ballot meant waiting all day and into the night in hallways and in the rain. if you decided to stick it out. maybe you didn't. or maybe you couldn't decide to stick it out and that line is why your vote never got counted that year. after that '04 election, congress issued a special report about what h

of being the president of the united states facing off against some non-president who wants their job. that only happens once per president. and these are the only times that has happened on tv in our nation's history. that's it. and this is the situation that president obama found himself in last night. it's only happened six other times in american history. so how did he do in historical context? there isn't that much historical context, right? like, this is a very knowable thing. honestly, that first one, that first one in 1976 where incumbent president gerald ford faced off against challenger jimmy carter, honestly, this one shouldn't even really count as part of the context like the rest of them because this one was almost too unusual. in terms of the reaction from that first debate, you want to know who won that debate? well, watch. >> good evening. here's what did it. a capacitor. a tiny electronic component costing less than $1. a capacitor blew out last night in an amplifier abc was using to feed the pool side to all the networks, plunging president ford and jimmy carter into

customers were left in pitch black. the swath of the eastern united states totally blacked out over the course of one day. and at this hour, more than 6 million electricity customers remain without power in the east. when they say this is the largest storm to have ever hit the east coast of the united states, the word largest in that phrase actually just means the physical area that is covered by this storm, which you can see in the fact we had outages from virginia to maine. but in terms of the direct hit of this storm, part of what makes this a storm of national significance is that when it came ashore, it hit the most populated place in our country. it's not just new york media dismor fee ya. this is the most densely p populated area. new jersey's population is greater than the population of maine, new hampshire, montana, nebraska, north dakota, south dakota, and wyoming combined. all in a state that's significantly smaller than even just new hampshire alone. the new york metro area has a population of over 22 million. when new york city evacuated just these areas in the five bu burr

had expected that the president of the united states would be able to describe what he's going to do in the next four years, but he can't. he can't even explain what he's done in the last four years. i mean, he spends most of his time trying to talking about how my plan won't work. well, what about his plan? >> that's president barack obama in iowa and mitt romney in virginia at campaign rallies today, continuing the fight from last night or trying to. joining us tonight is dan rather, the host of "dan rather reports" on axs tv. glad to have you here. >> always glad to be here. >> the first debate was a big and consequential win for governor romney. that tracks with incumbents beating challengers in first debates. how do you think president obama's rebound performance last night stacks up historically? >> it was very important for if no other reason, this reason. i can't think of another president who has demonstrated that he could absorb criticism, accept it, and say, you know, they're right. and then study what it takes to come back and then come back strongly with optimism and str

said when campaigning in 200, i'm not so sure the role of the united states is to go around the world and say this is the way it's got to be. we can help, maybe it's the way we want to help people. i just don't think it's the role of the united states to walk into a country and say we do it this way and so should you. that was george bush running in 2000. it turns out you don't get to decide what sort of presidency you have. george bush was essentially saying he wanted to have a domestic policy presidency. remember compassionate conservatism? he wanted less of a role in the world. you don't get to decide what circumstances confront you and you don't get to opt out of swavs of your responsibility. and some presidencies, for better, for worse, sometimes for a year at a time, sometimes for whole presidential terms, sometimes those presidencies end up being about america in the world. and the commander-in-chief part of the job. sometimes presidencies end up being about war. george bush i don't believe set out to have that kind of presidency, but that's the kind of presidency he got. into
